Endless Terrain and Paths

Recommended Posts

The terrain in the editor is endless. How can I make it ending?? How can I paint paths (like streets) in the landscape??

I believe I can make an option in the terrain engine so instead of repeating the terrain the tiles on the outside repeat forever. This would be good for an island type of level with a sea that stretches out forever. For now you can just limit the camera movement and/or put big mountains around the edges so you can''t see beyond.

To paint on the texture, just load the terrain.tga file into your paint program. Remember that if you change the heightfield and use the texture generator again you''ll lose your painted parts, so keep a backup.

You could use two layers. The user could paint on the first layer. At the end, the "painting layer" is placed over (merged)the "landscape texture layer".
